16th Annual Impacting Student Learning Conference
Saturday, March 22nd
University Hall / Georgia Regents University / Summerville campus
The conference will offers teachers practical strategies for enhancing P-12 learning. With sessions from a diverse group of presenters, topics will include – but are not limited to – Common Core, assessment, classroom management, differentiation, bullying, RTI, inclusion, content-based learning, and time and stress management. The conference is unique in scope because presentations are practitioner based, but include everyone from undergraduate students to practicing classroom teachers to university faculty.
Georgia’s Teacher of the Year, Jemellah Coes, will give the keynote address, which will focus on rejuvenating educators’ love for teaching and leading. The daughter of immigrants from Guyana, Coes dedicated herself to teaching to make a difference in the lives of children. She graduated from Georgia Southern University and became a teacher at Langston Chapel Middle School in Statesboro, Ga., where she developed expertise in co-teaching techniques.
